The flurry of fists furiously firing fast at the enemy were powerful, but the shield wasn't budging-- As expected of a Servant's weapon. Well, it was expected, but kinda boring to just... keep wailing on it. I mean, it'd seemed like a really cool move at the time, but now it just kinda felt... dull. The shield was tougher than he expected-- and the scales on his fists, though strong, were far from invincible; it would only slow the wear on his fists, hardly prevent it.
Suddenly, the shield tilted, bouncing Lancer's fists away, breaking the rhythm of fists he'd been building; he was thrown off guard, but only for a second, his eye gleamed as he saw Saber, readying a fist for a strike. He sniffed the sweat off the enemy's body, the beating of his heart as he was readying the strike; ah, perfect.
Rearing back, Lancer quickly swung both arms back towards the shield, pressing it downwards with both arms, trying to crush Saber with his own shield.
Mikal's brain acted fast-- Bears were hardly native to this area. Unless it had come from the sea-- Sea bears? But no, the fur wasn't wet. Were there any shipping crates from the zoo or...
Well, she'd neglected to consider what was probably, in hindsight, the most obvious answer, all things considered: magic. Where there was weird nonsense, there was usually magic. And where there was magic, there were... Mages.
"Why hello there."
Mikal jolted, quickly putting out the magical flame in her palm-- Oh god, this could NOT be good. She clutched the grimoire tighter as she slowly stood up, examining the strange fellow who'd just approached her. Now, Mikal was no detective, but looking over this guy, she was gonna take a wild guess and say he wasn't a sailor. And if he wasn't, what would he be doing down here? Following magic bears? Maybe she was getting paranoid, but it seemed safer to just presume everyone an enemy until proven otherwise-- She glanced down at her still-gloved hand, praying that there wasn't any of her mark showing.
"...Oh, I was just...!" Mikal said, hurriedly trying to think of a convincing lie. Wait... Why lie when the truth was so much dumber?
"...I saw this bear, and I was confused as hell, so I came down here." She answered as deadpan as possible. "Do you have any idea what's going on with this!? A bear! Out here! Can you believe it?!"
